{Webinar} SEL Assessment Design Challenge Winners Share Their Measures

In the Spring of 2017 Measuring SEL launched the Social-Emotional Competence Assessment Design Challenge. The purpose of the challenge was to learn from innovative methods of assessing social-emotional skills, with the ultimate goal being to construct and refine a set of key design principles that should guide the development of novel social-emotional assessments that support effective instruction and positive student development.

This hour-long webinar will showcase four of the winning measures of the Design Challenge. The four awardees will discuss their work, including what social-emotional competencies they assess and how.


The webinar will be Friday, Sept. 29 | 1:00 – 2:00p.m. ET.
